Inspired by the shape of the Caltagirone pine cone, symbol of life force and eternity, Alma is a 3D printed vase resulting from a skilful mix of digital, craftsmanship, nature and design.
In Alma the charm of the symbolic Sicilian object emerges strongly, also a metaphor of fertility of the mind that produces ideas of renewal and development. Descartes was among the first to associate the shape of the pine cone with the pineal gland of the human brain, considering it the home of the human spirit, the seat of the Soul. Hence, the name Alma.
A breath of Sicily, therefore, in the design and in the choice of colors through a skilful work of fusion between craftsmanship and digital processes, tradition and experimentation.
Alma is designed with a computational approach to design and created through additive manufacturing using the Contour Crafting methodology for the deposition of the ceramic body layer by layer.
The organic silhouette and the aesthetics of the details reinforce its stylistic rather than functional nature of this piece of furniture, giving a unique decorative touch and character to the space in which it is inserted.
